Artists' Gallery

The Weslaco Museum proudly showcases artists whose works reflect the culture and spirit of our community.  Emerging or established, solo or collaborative, scholastic or self-initiated, the Artists’ Gallery features a new exhibit each month that conveys a sense of home.  Selfies with Frida, Tinaco by moonlight, portraits of conjunto musicians who brought their sounds from the fields to the radio – the Weslaco Museum celebrates the people and places and experiences that help to shape our community. 

Historical Exhibits

  • ​Immigration and Revolution
  • Agriculture and Economy
  • Education and Segregation
  • The Weslaco Style Show – costumes made from local fruits & vegetables

Conservation & Research

The Weslaco Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts and archives, many of which are on regular display.  However, we have such a large collection that we cannot possibly exhibit all of our items at once.  Artifacts - objects - are kept in our storage room, cataloged into several groups: kitchen & housewares; cameras; clothing, hats & shoes; military & civic duty; geology; as well as several others.  Archives - papers and documents - are kept in our records room.  Artifacts and archives are made available for research to those individuals who submit a formal request.
